Beans Interview Questions

Q   |   QA

A property editor is a tool for customizing a particular property type. Property editors are activated in the Properties window. This window determines a property's type, searches for a relevant property editor, and displays the property's current value in a relevant way.

Write the SimpleBean code. Put it in a file named SimpleBean.java, in the directory of your choice. Here's the code:

import java.awt.Color;
import java.beans.XMLDecoder;
import javax.swing.JLabel;
import java.io.Serializable;

public class SimpleBean extends JLabel
implements Serializable {
public SimpleBean() {
setText( "Hello world!" );
setOpaque( true );
setBackground( Color.RED );
setForeground( Color.YELLOW );
setVerticalAlignment( CENTER );
setHorizontalAlignment( CENTER );

A Java Bean is a software component written in the Java programming language that conforms to the JavaBeans component specification. The JavaBeans APIs became part of the "core" Java APIs as of the 1.1 release of the JDK.
The JavaBeans specification defines a Java-based software component model that adds a number of features to the Java programming language. Some of these features include:

  • introspection
  • customization
  • events
  • properties
  • persistence

Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs) are Java-based software components that are built to comply with Java's EJB specification and run inside of an EJB container supplied by a J2EE provider. An EJB container provides distributed application functionality such as transaction support, persistence and lifecycle management for the EJBs.

JavaBeans components, or Beans, are reusable software components that can be manipulated visually in a builder tool. Beans can be combined to create traditional applications, or their smaller web-oriented brethren, applets. In addition, applets can be designed to work as reusable Beans.

Individual Beans will function quite differently, but typical unifying features that distinguish a Bean are:

Introspection: enables a builder tool to analyze how a Bean works
Customization: enables a developer to use an app builder tool to customize the appearance and behavior of a Bean
Events: enables Beans to communicate and connect together
Properties: enable developers to customize and program with Beans
Persistence: enables developers to customize Beans in an app builder, and then retrieve those Beans, with customized features intact, for future use.

Developers are turning to creating components rather than monolithic applications to free themselves from slow, expensive application development, and to build up a portable, reusable code base. This enables developers to quickly attack new market opportunities, new joint development opportunities, and new ways to sell smaller packages of software.
